Love salmon? Me, too! It used to be that I only ate salmon when I was in a restaurant. Soon as I switched to low-carb eating, though, it was time to learn how to make it myself.
Oven baked salmon is simple and delicious.
Oven Baked Salmon in Foil
Preheat oven 400°
- Cut a piece of aluminum foil large enough to envelop a piece of salmon and leave a little bit of space for air.
- Spray it with non-stick cooking spray and lay it on a baking pan.
- Lay the salmon, skin side down, on the foil.
- Place a generous pat of butter on top and some sliced lemons.
- Fold the foil around and close it at the top as a "tent."
- Bake for approximately 20 minutes till done. Cooking time will vary depending on size and thickness of the fish. A sign that it is done is that it should flake when lightly poked with the tines of a fork.
This particular plate is set for the lowest of carbohydrates. Scallops have some carbs so for this meal, day#1 of my Atkins plan, I had just a taste. Later, after losing my first 10 pounds, I am willing to have more scallops. Yum! Salmon and asparagus have nearly zero carbs so eat all you want.
